Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown was injured on what appeared to be an illegal hit by Florida State defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel. Late in the second quarter, Brown made a throw towards the right side and received a big blow from McDaniel, who hit the quarterback squarely in the chest, leading with his helmet.
Brown has suffered multiple injuries in his Maryland career and has missed two full seasons thanks to shoulder and leg injuries. Brown was able to walk off the field on his own power after spending several minutes down on the ground. Caleb Rowe is Brown's replacement, and will enter the game immediately.
